. as president obama points out, mitt romney's plan for the auto workers of ohio would have actually sent jobs to china. >> he's hoping you remember that it's likely to create jobs in china because is shifts them overseas instead of here in the united states of america. if mitt romney had been president when the auto industry was on the verge of collapse, we might not have an automobile industry today. we'd be buying cars from china instead of selling to them. >> mitt romney's path to the presidency is impossible without ohio's 18 electoral votes. right now winning ohio is not looking good for romney. six ohio polls were released this week. five of them have president obama leading. one is tied. president obama's average lead in ohio is 2.3 points. that's a big lead, seriously. now families in northern ohio have not forgotten what the rescue of the automobile industry did for their state. one in eight ohio jobs are about the automobile industry. this is why mitt romney is doing everything he possibly can to down play the impact of the auto rescue. his political director says the obama campaign
romney get to 270 without ohio and how much easier is it for the president to get to 270 with ohio? let's start with the president. he's at 237 right now, electoral college votes, leaning or strong for him, 206 for romney. if the president were to take ohio it puts him at 255, the easiest way for the president to get over the top, stay in the midwest. take wisconsin, take iowa, and the president's over the top. let's just say for the sake of argument he takes wisconsin but governor romney gets the state of iowa on election day. the president would still be at 265 with ohio and wisconsin, then he just needs five more. new hampshire would give him four so that's not big enough. but obama campaign increasingly thinks the latino vote in nevada would do it. that would put the president over the top there. if he didn't get nevada for some reason, the president's options would be colorado, virginia, new hampshire or florida. the president with an easier path. what about governor romney. let's leave this one blue. can governor romney get there if ohio is going blue. can romney get all the way t
to be trending towards romney. obama and romney have spent so much time in virginia and ohio that they will have to start paying taxes in both states. ohio? >> ohio remains beyond romney's grasp at this point in large part because obama is doing better there with white voters than he has across the country, and in the northeast of ohio, the auto bailout made a difference i. it is so much of a problem that rob portman, introducing romney in defiance, ohio in front of a huge crowd, said that "we have got to talk about this auto bailout tonight." they are still trying to explain. >> can romney win without ohio? >> yes, but it will be a tough one to reach. but it is still very close race. >> virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i look at the polls, and romney is up on average -- >> you can take your calls in virginia, because another poll shows obama is up in virginia. even with the heavy onslaught by romney, it still shows the northern virginia area still pretty much supports barack obama. >> new hampshire could be in play. >> new hampshire traditionally was a republ
. >> mitt romney unleashes a perfect storm of lies trying to fool buckeye state voters. former ohio governor ted strickland and congressman tim ryan are here with the truth. >> when you take a look at colin powell, i don't have you to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he has a slightly different reason for supporting president obama. >> going after colin powell. tonight colin powell's former chief of staff lawrence wilkerson on sununu's charge. >>> and michael eric dyson on racism as a campaign tactic in the year 2012. >>> plus righties are freaking out, calling the obama campaign satanic over this ad. >> super uncool to be out and about did you vote, no, i wasn't ready. >> and lives hang in the balance if obama care gets repealed. pearl jam guitarist mike mccready is standing up for people with preexisting conditions and he joins "the ed show" tonight. good to have you with us, folks. thanks for watching. all eyes are on ohio in the final weeks of the 2012 election. the romney campaign hit a sour note last night at a rally in the buckeye state. ♪ ♪ and crow
, and this year's nominee is campaigning as if that still is a rule. mitt romney took a break from his ohio marathon and went to iowa. >> we're going to create 12 million new jobs in just four years. we'll see rising take-home pay, and we'll get america's economy growing at 4% a year, more than double this year's rate. >> reporter: the former governor has improved his poll numbers because since the first debate, more voters just like him. >> mitt romney used to be upside down in terms of his likability. well, that's no longer the case. >> reporter: back in lebanon, ohio, a pretty town in the key swing state. >> that's true. >> reporter: these sisters sell furniture. cassie voted for barack obama in '08, but decided to switch after she went to see mitt romney. >> i believed his promises and that he would do his best. and i think it's time for a change. >> reporter: the president ended his campaign marathon in ohio last night, and today is arguing 2% growth in the third quarter, the new number out today, is better than expected. "stick with me and my plan" the president urged on mtv. >> for t
, colorado and ohio, but look at this, if i move ohio over to romney, he is still short of the 270 magic number, could mean that colorado, a state we told you yesterday in the polling had it 48-48, means it could be the state keeping us up all night. but speaking of keeping us up all night, here, i give the midwestern states all to romney. wisconsin, iowa, ohio and florida, but go ahead and give virginia to the president. let me show you where this takes us. 269 for romney. 269 for the president. here, and i have no more electoral votes to push. this would mean we would have the constitution work, and this would also mean, brian, that the most likely outcome in this is the house would elect romney president, and the senate would elect biden vp. there are a lot of possible scenarios, this one, not so implausible. >> chuck, step away from the math, we have days to go, many different scenarios, we'll be checking in with you, chuck todd, washington. >>> and now, we turn to a tragic story around the country today. it happens around the country. this begins with a very big number, in this coun
. >> hello, ohio! >> god bless ohio. >> reporter: president obama and mitt romney's campaigns are practically camped out here. and each candidate has made multicity tours of the state just this week. winning ohio is critical for both. but because of the electoral mass, it's much more so for romney. whose victory may well depend on the state's 18 electoral votes. david cohen is a professor of political skoins at the university of ago ron. >> no republican has ever taken the white house without taking the state of ohio. and only a couple times has a democrat done so. to clearly it is an important state. >> reporter: but also a complex one. the two driving forces of growth here play into the messages of both campaigns. mr. obama points to his administration's auto rescue for saving jobs. and romney emphasizes the need for domestic energy production as an economic engine for the area. >> we've had a lot of positive economic news over the last couple of months. and so the question is, is it too close to the election to really make an impact on people's votes? or are people still kind of weighing t
here in ohio. we expect to see president obama and governor romney hit these battle grounds hard over the next ten days. ohio is perhaps the most important of them, especially for governor romney. because no republican candidate has won the white house, alex, without winning this state. last night as you mentioned, he and paul ryan held a huge rally in north canton last night, about 8,000 people according to the campaign braved some pretty brisk temperatures. the governor is asking for their help in this state because the latest cnn poll just out a few days ago shows that the president is up four points. 50-46. now that lead is about half of what it was a few weeks ago. so the governor has chipped away at that lead but still has a ways to go. they want to get their graund game out, get people out to early vote and then get people out to the polls on november 6th. governor romney is going to campaign with florida senator marco rubio and paul ryan is going to hit this state hard over the next 48 hours. they really expect to win here. rob portman, who was governor romney's debate partner
the first debate. and polls show he's now in a virtual tie with the president. but in ohio, romney has seen much smaller gains. mr. obama has consist enly lead in the polls here and still holds an average of a 2 to 3 point lead. with the resurgence of the auto industry, new steal production and the promise of large natural gas reserves, you can sense the optimism here in northeast ohio. but a big question now is whether democratic strongholds like youngstown will give mr. obama enough margin to carry the state and stay in the white house. mr. obama's popularity here is maintained by strong support from autoworkers like union president green. >> in march everything almost came to a halt, right. the contractors we had in the plant were backing off. there were helicopters flying over our plant taking inventory, people walking through our plant with clipboards taking inventory. they were going to liquidate our facility. that's a fact. so mitt romney can air brush this all i wants. that's what was happening at the time. the fact that president obama stood up and said i'm going take a bet on the
for governor romney and that is the state of ohio. historically no republican candidate has won the election without taking this battleground state. the latest poll shows governor romney in a dead heat with the president both at 48% and as obama is relying mainly on the quote auto bailout for a victor arery in the state, voters are more concerned about the overall economy. romney is leading obama when it comes to the handling of the economy. joining us is michael barone. what do you think? >> what is happening in ohio? well, this was one of the three firewall states. the obama campaign wanted to concentrate on three states where they got the lowest winning percentages in 2008 except for indiana and north carolina which they conceded, florida, ohio and virginia. since the october 3 debate, florida seems to be gone toward mitt romney. he has been winning almost all polls this. virginia has been even tending a little toward romney in my judgment. ohio has been a little stickier. are the auto bailout is an issue there. if you look at the polls what you will see is white noncollege voters. a grou
polls this. virginia has been even tending a little toward romney in my judgment. ohio has been a little stickier. are the auto bailout is an issue there. if you look at the polls what you will see is white noncollege voters. a group that was 58-40 for john mccain nationally four years ago are not giving romney in ohio that much of an edge. and so i think there is some gain that the democrats have gotten from that -- that huge barrage of antiromney ads they ran before the convention. i would say this, though, sean. i think there is some reason to beware arery of the ohio polls. we are seeing results there in the most recent weeks there varying in between a tie and a five point obama swing. but you we are also seeing in the polls almost all of them the 11 in which the real clear politics .com average is based romney way ahead as much as is 20 points among independents and when you look at the party identification figure there, the average in those 11 polls is 39-32, a 7-point advantage. that is essentially equivalent to what the exit poll proclaimed although as josh jordan points out in n
of mitt romney's virginia events for tomorrow. the gop nominee will instead travel to ohio. all this because of the impending impact of hurricane sandy. we of course are tracking sandy. progress up the east coast. nbc's meteorologist dylan drier in the msnbc studios in new york. ton trung in delaware. we just got the latest advisory from the hurricane center. what can you tell us. >> nothing has changed. this still indicates the storm is a category 1 hurricane and very far out to sea, but still just as huge as it has been. that's why we are still dealing with some potential for stronger wind gusts and decent rain along the coast of south carolina and north carolina. north eastern north carolina and south eastern south carolina will be almost a pivot point for this storm to rotate on. that's going to produce heavy torrential rain in that area. it is moving northeast right now. still sounds weird that this storm is ever going to take this turn to the northwest, but it is going to happen. it's going to happen especially early monday. sunday night into monday morning is when it take
political director domenico montanaro. >> can mitt romney win without ohio? it's possible, but we have to give him florida and virginia. give him colorado out west where it seems like things are leaning to him. he's only at 257 electoral votes. he's 13 short. he needs some combination of these. co-do it with wisconsin and vau. that puts him over the top. you see the key there is going to be wisconsin right there in the middle because if he doesn't win ohio, and wins florida, wins virginia, he's probably going to need to have to win wisconsin. while we talked about the importance of the midwest winning two of those three states. if we also take you back now and look, if president obama can win without florida absolutely possible, but again, the key for president obama is going to be ohio. you have florida and virginia to romney. he's at 248, obama 243. colorado leaning toward romney. now give obama new hampshire where he is favored, wisconsin where he is favored. give him iowa, just 263. then we are looking on election night to that all-important state of ohio, obama at 281. if you gave
acosta is traveling with the romney campaign. >> we've been traveling by bus over the last few days, ohio and iowa, one thing we've heard, he's been debuting this new theme, he is the agent, he is the candidate of big change and the president is just more of what he calls the status quo. one thing we can also report is the romney campaign is right now sort of riding a wave of momentum, some recent polls, not just nationally but across several swing states have shown romney gaining some traction and getting very close to overtaking the president in several key swing states and both nationally. now, the romney campaign did put out a memo earlier in the week throwing cold water on one ohio state poll they took issue with saying it wasn't properly calibrated but they are also at the same time touting a new "washington post" poll showing mitt romney leading the president nationally and doing very well among independents. at the same time we should p point out that along this tour he has hit a bit of a roadblock. one of his top surrogates, john sununu made some comments when he suggested that c
by the experience of being called out. here's another one. mr. romney spoke yesterday in the town of defiance, ohio. part of why ohio's economy has bounced back is we did not let detroit go bankrupt. the obama administration bailed out the automobile industry. it's roared back to life and the big three are hiring again. yesterday mitt romney gave that obama administration success story a little mitt romney tickle. >> i saw a store today that one of the great manufacturers in this state is thinking of moving all production to china. >> wow. mr. romney saying, hey, don't get too comfy there, ohio, with the obama rescue of the automobile industry. it's been better. we saved everything here and that's why you have jobs, but don't get too comfy. i read they are moving all the jobs working for jeep. they are moving all the jeep jobs to china. he said that in ohio on the campaign trail 12 days before the election. and it is not true at all. the real jeep news that day was actually that chrysler announced they were adding 1100 new jobs in the u.s. here making jeeps in detroit. and chrysler says it could hi
last month when mitt romney held a business roundtable in bedford height, ohio. he did it at a plant called american spring wire. they bill themselves as north america's largest manufacturer of valve and commercial-quality sprint wire. they also make pc strand. at his visit to american spring wire, mr. romney hammered away at president obama for not being tough on china. not the way that he mitt romney would be tough on china. but the company mr. romney chose for his backdrop that day, the company that he chose to implicitly help make that case so happened to be a poster child for success by president obama in getting tough on china. in 2009 in the first months of president obama's presidency, american spring wire joined with two other makers to ask for help. china was unfairly dumping steel wire in the united states market at artificial low prices. they asked for help. the commerce department said they would investigate and the commerce department did move to protect american spring wire. they cracked down on china for dumping their underpriced product. thus the company was benefitt
. am i right even though it's fun to see romney is up three or down three all that matters is ohio iowa, wisconsin those are the only ones we have to drill down on. >> that's right. to award romney all of his states and left with three or four percentage points with the battleground states. with the battleground states president obama all he needs to do to get to the 270 electoral votes that he needs to win if he wins nevada, and you have a top republican saying nevada is going with obama. wins wisconsin which has the president up two or three points. then you add iowa or new hampshire which the polls may an slight obama lead but even if romney runs the table and gets every state that currently has it as a dead heat, florida, virginia, iowa, new hampshire, as long as president obama still holds on to ohio, nevada and wisconsin no matter what the national pop lay vote, the president gets 271 and he wins. >> eliot: if i hear you properly what is going on here, even though the national polls are saying this thing is closing up, mitt romney is making this thing an interesting horse race to
winning ohio and mitt romney doesn't see a path of doing it without the buckeye state. they'll be essentially living in ohio that either romney or ryan will be in the buckeye state until election day. the problem that they have is that where the message nationally might be on all sorts of different things, on ohio, the president has visited ohio more than any other state since he was elected and he has always pounded the issues of auto bailout, and that it is crucial. in addition to the president being able to say hey i helped save the auto makers, and mitt romney wanted to let them go a bankrupt that's a potent message in ohio. sherrod brown has done an incredible job of organizing unions and making sure that hardcore democrats get to the polls regardless of what is going on with president obama. it's a pretty safe state as safe states go when you're talking about a four or five point difference. the obama campaign is extremely confident that they'll win ohio and a couple of other states that will get them the numbers they need. as far as the national numbers. what about th
romney and/or paul ryan on the ground in ohio every day up till election day. >> ten straight days. quickly here, ron, i'm always fascinated with enthusiasm in turnout for these guys. what has the turnout been like over the past few days for paul ryan? >> the turnout today has been strong. it's a great day. there are a couple of hundred folks out here. they've been enthusiastic. they are fired up about this ticket. now it's a matter of seeing who has the better ground game to get voters to the polls. >> romney and ryan, are they going to be campaigning together tomorrow in ohio? >> they will. they've got three stops across the state tomorrow on the bus. we expect that the crowds will probably are getting in fair notice the governor will be here, as well. we'll see bigger crowds than we would have otherwise. >> ron mott on the bus with congressman paul ryan in ohio. thank you, sir. do appreciate that. democrats are relying on women voters to help propel president obama to a second term. governor romney surging. he's nearly even with the president among registered female voters, a nu
